Gauged Nut Slotting File Set for Electric Guitar

About This Item

The right gauges for cutting and shaping string slots on electric guitars. Six files in each set: choose light, medium or heavy gauge strings.

Our tempered edge-cut nut files produce round-bottom slots for nuts and saddles. Ensure your strings seat properly in the nut without buzzing!

Each chrome-alloy steel file has twin 4" cutting edges. Among our most popular tools, these professional files help you get the job done quickly and correctly.


Save 10% by purchasing the set
StewMac tech advisors specify these sets to match your string gauge:

#0881 For Light Strings
0.010", 0.013", 0.016", 0.024", 0.032", and 0.042"

#0882 For Medium Strings
0.010", 0.013", 0.016", 0.028", 0.035", and 0.046"

#0883 For Heavy Strings
0.013", 0.020", 0.024", 0.035", 0.046", and 0.056"


Just want one? Each file is also sold individually.

Match the file to the string gauge
Choose a file of the same size as the string, or no more than a few thousandths wider. By rocking the file side to side, you can widen the slot to fit a slightly wider string.

Nut slotting files work great for metal Tune-o-matic bridge saddles. After filing, polish the slot with Mitchell Abrasive Cord to remove file marks.

Years ago, I bought an expensive, name-brand hollowbody. The nut was a mess. The warranty center wouldn't touch it. I obtained some blank nuts and did my best with needle files. Then, I saw Dan using these slotting files, and I was thrilled. I got me a set, and I was amazed at how easy a job can be when you use the right tools. Thanks, Dan!
